Are Arab Nations alone responsible for the Palestinian refugees?

The ‘Palestinian’ refugee crisis was a successfully implemented, political strategy created by the Arab political elite and facilitated by the United Nations after the armies of five Arab nations failed to eliminate the Jewish State of Israel during their 1948 offensive.  Since then the UN, Arab nations and their sycophantic allies have willingly maintained the plight of the refugees when resolution could and should have been achieved as has happened with numerous other geopolitical events concerning refugees.

Unfortunately, hatred towards the Jewish State ensured that moral indecency took precedence and resolution of the situation was never on the agenda nor an objective of the Arab nations. Palestinians have served as the pawns and useful idiots of the Arab Nations and the UN.


Moreover, the ever-increasing financial wealth, media and political profiles of both past and current Palestinian leaders have ensured that this situation remains unaltered supported too by the rabidly racist, Palestinian Charters seeking nothing other than the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel.

Mental indoctrination of three generations of Palestinian children, educated to hate the Jewish people and the Jewish State of Israel has formed the bedrock of the Palestinian education system funded by the United Nations.


This has been achieved by the Palestinian leadership eternally promoting the Jew hating manifestos that are the Palestinian Charters of 1964 updated 1968, and the Palestinian Hamas Charter of 1988.

A mid 1970’s semiofficial UK Government Report -The Double Exodus ( by Terence Prittie, Bernard Dineen and Philip Goodhart MP ) , A Study of Arab and Jewish Refugees In The Middle East , exposed the reality of the politics and the strategy of the Arab leaders.


“Arab Governments regarded the destruction of the State of Israel as a more pressing matter than the welfare of the Palestinian refugee. Palestinian bitterness and anger had to be kept alive. It was clear that this could best be done by ensuring that the Palestinians lived under sub normal conditions, the victims of hunger and poverty. No Arab Government preached this as a defined policy – most Arab Governments put it into practice”.

That policy could only be successful with a parallel hate filled education system and the report went on to state – “Unfortunately Palestinian children have also been systematically taught in their schools to hate Israel and its people; UNWRA officials have reluctantly admitted that there is much virulent anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish propaganda in their school text books. Five to six-year olds have been taught in their drawing classes to depict Israelis as monsters of cruelty and ugliness. UNWRA has been powerless to prevent such perverse political indoctrination of the very young which will undoubtedly make a powerful contribution to their state of minds”.


The Palestinians hated the Jews more than they loved their children. If one looks hard enough for the truth then the lies and propaganda perpetrated by the liars and propagandists will be exposed.

When the subject of Arab refugees was discussed in the UN Security Council on March 4th 1949 many delegates including the Soviet spokesman had no doubt that it was the invasion of the Jewish State by five neighboring Arab countries that caused the problem.


“Statements have been made on the Arab refugee question, but why should the State of Israel be blamed for the existence of that problem? When seeking to determine responsibility for the existence of the problem of the Arab refugees, we cannot fail to mention the outside forces. They pursue their own selfish interests which have nothing in common either with the cause of peace and international security or with the interests of the Arab and Jewish peoples, and which only correspond to the aggressive designs of the leading circles of some States”.

Let’s review a few of the written statements made by UN politicians, Arab statesmen and editorials in Arab newspapers immediately following the exodus of Arab immigrant workers we now call Palestinians, from the landmass now forming the State of Israel. I use the phrase Arab immigrant workers with good reason as the vast majority of Arab Palestinians were indeed just that. The economic benefits of Zionism persuaded thousands of workers to leave their countries and come to Palestine to increase their living standards.


There is evidence in abundance to prove this.

British Consul, James Finn, June 2nd 1860 in his ‘ Relating to the Disturbances in Syria’ report.

“I learn of the arrival of six thousand of the Beni Sukhr Arabs at Tiberias who are very seldom seen this side of the Jordan”.

Encyclopedia Britannica, 1911 edition:

There are very large contingents from the Mediterranean countries especially Armenia, Greece and Italy. Turkomen settlers, a fairly large Afghan colony, Motawila (Pakistan), immigrants from Persia, tribes of Kurds, a Bosnian colony, Circassian settlements, a large Algerian element, Sudanese.


Winston Churchill, 1922 in his book A Peace To End All Peace

“The Arabs would have sat in the dark forever had not the Zionist engineers harnessed the Jordan river for electrification. Now they swarm into Palestine seeking the light”.

Jacob De Haas, History of Palestine, The Last Two Thousand Years, 1934:

“In 1860, entire Algerian tribes immigrated en masse to Safed. The Muslims of Safed are descended from these Moorish settlers and from Kurds that came earlier to the city”.


Tewlik Bey El Houran the Governor of Hauran Province in Southwest Syria , stated in an interview with La Syne , a French Syrian paper on August 12th 1934”

“….in the last few months as many as thirty-six thousand Hourani Syrians had entered and settled in Palestine”.

Palestine Royal Commission Report, London 1937”

“This illegal Arab immigration was not only going on from the Sinai, but also from Trans Jordan and Syria and it is very difficult to make a case for the misery of the Arabs if at the same time their compatriots from adjoining States could not be kept from going in to share that misery”.


Winston Churchill ,  to the House of Commons , May 23rd 1939:

“So far from being persecuted the Arabs have crowded into the country and multiplied until their population has increased more than all world Jewry could lift up the Jewish population”.

Ernst Frankenstein, Justice For My People, 1943:

“Ibrahim Pasha the 1831 Egyptian conqueror of Palestine left behind him permanent colonies of Egyptians at Besian, Nablus, Irbid, Acre and Jaffa. Into Jaffa alone thousands have been imported”.


James William Parkes, History of the Peoples of Palestine, 1970:

“There are villages populated wholly by settlers from other portions of the Turkish Empire in the 19th century. There are villages of Bosnians, Circassians, and Egyptians”.
